I love sheepskin and Mongolian lamb accents in a room. It’s a wonderful way to bring comfort and coziness into a space that needs it. Feeling like your Sisal rug is too rough? Throw down some sheepskin rugs, poufs, pillows or stools to add a much needed softness. Do you love the look of your modern mesh desk chair, but not the comfort? Toss a sheepskin throw over the chair to make it and your office oh so cozy. Here is some inspiration to get you headed in the right direction. The look works best in small accents and not doing too much. Don’t miss the D.I.Y lamb stool tutorial below.

I love these patterned deer head D.I.Y’s ! They would add so much character and personality into a dorm space. They are also light enough to hang with no nails using only command strips. Here are a few of my favorite deer heads tutorials to bring a mascot into your dorm room.
As most of you know you can’t nail or drill anything into your dorm walls. This can be tricky especially when trying to add a little life into your space.

These ideas are sure to liven up your dorm. I just had to share a little inspiration.
I love street food. I especially love the food truck craze! It’s such a smart concept for the chef, restaurant owners and foodies. Who doesn’t get a thrill out of getting a gourmet meal at an affordable price. What I really love is how stylish and smart some of the truck designs are. I mean you can turn any kind of truck into a kitchen really. Here are some of my favorite trucks I would love to eat at. Now I’m hungry!
What’s your favorite food truck?
